Meatless Monday: Mushroom Rice Casserole

Today is the first of my Meatless Mondays. I will be sharing a vegetarian recipe every Monday, some will come from submissions and some are either mine or family inspired.

This Mushroom Rice Casserole is based on the one my Mimi made when I was little. I had to guess a little as she passed away when I was still very little, but helping her make this dish is a memory I will always treasure.

As some of you know, I’m actually a pescatarian (means I don’t eat beef, pork, foul, lamb, etc. The only “meat” I eat is seafood) for medical reasons but love the idea behind Meatless Monday.

If you would like to submit your recipe for posting, please email me @

What are you having for dinner?



Meatless Monday is a non-profit public health initiative in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Launched in 2003, the goal of Meatless Monday is to cut saturated fat intake, which in turn reduces the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer. Going meatless one day a week can also decrease our carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.

    Thanks Anya! I love rice and mushrooms but have never made this kind of a casserole before – this does sound yummy

    1. Thanks, Maria. I love rice and mushroom, but even better are the memories I get to savor while making this dish for my kids. Hope you enjoy!
